Talking bins should cut litter on UK streets

Last updated at 17:13

Talking bins are being set up in the UK to stop people throwing rubbish on the ground.

More than two million pieces of litter are dropped on our streets every day so now campaigners are turning to extreme measures.

The bins look normal, but they sing, talk and sometimes even burp.

Famous faces like Amanda Holden, Kenny Logan and voice of The X Factor Peter Dickson are all recording their own bin messages.

It's all part of a campaign organised by Keep Britain Tidy called Love Where You Live to change people's attitudes and behaviour towards litter.

From next month they'll be 25 of these bins around central London and five in Liverpool.

Manchester and Birmingham will be next.

They've already been a big success in Europe. In Sweden, a talking bin took three times more rubbish than a normal one nearby.
